    Where to See Real Tanks?

    Where can we go to see real tanks besides the AAF Museum in Danville?

    A nice museum here in Los Angeles (actually El Monte) is the American Military Museum.

    I go there for inspiration.

    Where can we go to see real tanks besides the AAF Museum in Danville?
    Here are a few that I have visited. Aberdeen..but they are disappering fast. Virginia Military Vehicle Assn by Manassas. VA (Nokesville Tank Farm) c/o Wuseum of Americans in Wartime. The National D-Day Memorial in Bedford is also a must see (little armor though). Patton Mus at Fort Knox..if it is still open. US Army Heritage Center Carlisle, PA. Wright Musem in Wolfsboro, NH. WW II Museum in N O, LA*. The Smithsonian is a hoot if you go near Aberdeen, MD be sure to stop by for the V-1 and ME 262 and much more.

    If you like to travel some....... Imperial War Musuem in London,UK; Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset, UK; Samur, France and Munster, Germany.

    I have not hit Kublinka.....YET! NOTE: If you want to see German WW II tanks Bovington is the nicest and Samur has the biggest collection.

    * or the old D-Day Museum. There is also the Military Mus. of Southern New England in Danbury CT. but these two I have not been to.

    Fort Hood in Kileen Texas has a small but very comprehensive collection of US Armor.
    The older I get, the better I was.

    LVT 4, USMC M4 105mm, Stug III, DD Sherman & Hetzer building.

    RE: Where to See Real Tanks?

    Canadian Forces Base Borden has a long list of static displays,
    T34, T55, T60
    Shermans several varieties up to the Firefly
    German Hetzer, Flakpanzer, had a Panther but moved it to Ottawa
    Then your usual Leapord, Centurions, Cromwell Churchill.
    All in all around the base I bet there is about 30 tanks maybe more.

    Fort Carson, Colorado has US armor, WWII to present.  They are in a park outside the base gate, about a dozen pieces.

    There's always the late Jacques Littlefield's collection - http://www.mvtf.org/index.html

    Haven't been there in quite some while but it should still be worth a visit if you've never seen it.
